“July is Juvenile Arthritis Awareness month, and the perfect time to share some useful information and ideas for how to ease the pain and discomfort caused by this disease,” said Rich Hiner, president of International Hot Tub. “For the thousands of children suffering from juvenile arthritis, putting on clothing or brushing teeth can be a challenge. By exercising regularly, maintaining a healthy body weight and using a hot tub to control pain, quality of life can significantly improve,” continued Hiner. We’ve provided a few suggestions…
Light Exercise. The benefits of light exercise for reducing arthritis pain are undisputed. Movement and physical activity of any kind increase blood circulation which helps bring more oxygen to affected areas, reducing aches and pains. While it may be difficult at first, exercising regularly will help to control pain, lower inflammation and even improve flexibility. Over time, daily activities will become easier and less painful. For families, any light aerobic exercise is a good choice. Swimming, biking, even family walks are perfect activities to consider. Strength-building exercises keep muscles and joints flexible and increase range of motion.
Maintain a Healthy Body Weight. Children suffering from juvenile arthritis may gain weight due to inactivity or medication. It’s important to maintain a healthy body weight to avoid placing too much pressure on the joints and bones. In addition to exercise, eating the right amounts of fruits and vegetables, along with getting plenty of calcium can help reduce weight gain over time. Avoiding weight loss is just as important as avoiding weight gain. Some children with juvenile arthritis experience poor appetite. Make certain to include plenty of healthy snacks and consider increasing the nutrient and calorie content of meals. You may want to consult a nutritionist is your child suffers from either weight gain or loss.
Ease Pain With a Hot Tub. For instant pain relief, a hot tub offers an easy, convenient solution. Sitting in the warm water just three times a week significantly decreases stiffness and discomfort. In addition, the massaging water of a hot tub helps to increase range of motion, improves mobility and leaves joints and muscles relaxed. Buoyancy created by the water takes pressure off joints instantly, creating the perfect pain free place to sit and relax. A hot tub at home is available year round, making it even easier to get instant pain relief from the convenience of your own backyard retreat, year round, day or night.
“In an effort to help educate the public on how warm water hydrotherapy can ease pain and improve overall well-being, we will provide free hot tub test soaks in our 4 locations during the entire month,” said Jill Seng, marketing manager. “We want consumers to check out the benefits of a relaxing soak in an energy efficient hot tub for themselves.”
“Since we expect a huge response to this offer, we encourage people to schedule their free 30-minute soak with us ahead of time by calling 303-296-7727 to reserve their time,” continued Seng. “That way we can have everything ready for a relaxed, private, no pressure hot tub experience.”
